WALKING SPIRITUALLY is on a mission…..
Hi, I’m Benjamin ‘Raven’ Pressley, author and founder of WALKING SPIRITUALLY. I, like many of you, have been on a spiritual journey all my life. You know what I mean by that? Are you one of those people that just know that there is more to life than what you can see, taste, touch, hear and smell? There is a deeper part of you calling to something out there that is deeper than life in this skin. Unfortunately there are so many disciplines and religions out there that would like to take advantage of that kind of thinking and that kind of person. Maybe, like me, you have even tried out a few of them only to find them sadly lacking in what you were looking for. I understand. I was brought up in a pretty toxic religion that it was taboo to question. However, it was when I did dare to question that things started making sense. I want to help you make sense of it all and I offer the following services. Let me know if I can help. —Raven
